Notes : It is highly unlikely that this tab can be considered as
        definitive in terms of how the song is actually played.  I
        think I've nailed pretty much all the riffs but the outro
        still bothers me somewhat - it's just too simplistic for
        Nile!  I'm sure there is something else going on but I'm
        fucked if I can decipher it correctly.

        Also, if you want the harmonies you can work them out your
        damn self!  I've done the hard work so it's the least you
        can do!

It should be all present and as correct as I can make it.  As
always with a tab of this complexity, run through it while
listening to the CD before trying it - it'll help you familiarise
yourself with the various rhythms at work.  As usual, any
comments, corrections or suggestions are welcome.

Also, I encourage you to register a rating that reflects the
quality of this tab.  The only way I know that a tab needs
improving or not is if people give it an accurate rating.
Thanks in advance.
